Reigning European U23 200m silver medallist Leon Reid (above, centre) will take on former European U23 100m runner up Deji Tobais at Footes Lane on Saturday.

The two men will be part of an all-star line up which should be finalised in the next 24 hours or so.

Reid holds a 200m best of 20.62sec and although the 100m is not his favoured event, he is no slouch with a best time of 10.34sec. Tobais won his European U23 silver back in 2013 and has since then posted a PB of 10.18sec and even got close to the magical 10sec barrier with a wind-assisted 10.04 at Bedford in 2014.

Both men are well capable of reducing last year’s Intertrust 10th Anniversary Games winner, Reuben Arthur’s record of 10.40sec on Saturday.
